Frogpool is a hamlet in the parish of Gwennap (where the 2011 census population was included), Cornwall, England.[1][2] Frogpool is situated 6 miles (9.7 km) south-west of Truro and 1.2 miles (1.9 km) from the nearest railway station at Perranwell Station. It has a local public house called the Cornish Arms [3] and up until a few years ago also had a local convenience store which has since closed.
